Unsupported Processor Detected

DL380 w/800 MHz Procesor, 128 Mb RAM.
System was working fine. Tried to update P17 BIOS from 05/08/2000 to 04/02/2001 using v4.8 Smart Start CD. Upgraded successfully.

Power cycled server and now getting a "Unsupported Processor Detected System Halted" error.

Re: Unsupported Processor Detected

Try using SP17272. Find the maintenace switches on the systemboard right behind the first PPM. Turn them all on with the bootable floppy ROM FLASH in. Keep an eye on the floppy drive as you will have to wait about 1 minute after the light goes out. The server should beep like crazy. This is called an EMERGENCY ROM FLASH. This should resolve you issue.
